Frog Tape and an Old Leather Suitcase

I'm probably the last person in blog~land to use Frog Tape.  I'm really impressed with it's ability to give clean lines (even when I rearranged the tape several times before painting)~~

I'm going to try this on fabric also~~it's a bit more expensive than regular painters tape, but well worth the results~~

~~got a new stencil to show off onto this old leather suitcase~~

~~just a bit more distressing to do (after getting the "clean lines")~~
gotta make it look more vintage because the stripes look too new (well, they are of course)~~

Have you tried this tape on fabric and how did it stand up to the job for you?
Hope you're making it a great week~~thanks for stopping by and wishing you many blessings!
See you at this great party:

Wicker Hamper and Old Chair Projects

I bought a vintage wicker hamper and ladder back chair for $3.00 each.  The chair I have had for a long time and finally added it to the project list.  The black paint projects were lined up~~here's two of them:

Here's an older picture below of wood chair (one of my junk finding days)~~

Painted with home~made black chalk paint and lightly distressed;

~~a black and white Toile pillow looks sweet with the French script padded seat~~
Below is the cute hamper; it was in dire/desperate condition; really was a fabulous $3.00 bargain~~


 ~~and below is a picture of it white with plastic vinyl in it's prior





~~Geez~~I found this fabric in my stash and forgot I even had this; was a perfect little touch after padding the lid~~used a bit of jute trim around the edges~~



~~Thanks for stopping by~~I'm off to see what you've been up to.  Have a great day and many blessings!  ~patty~
